Itinerary:
We will meet at the carpool for 5:00 PM Friday. Please pack a dinner for the road or for when we arrive at the campground as we will not have time to stop on the way to Jasper.

I have booked 2 campsites at Wapiti Campground (6 KM south of Jasper). We are allowed 2 tents per site so we will not need to share.

Hikes have not been confirmed at this point but will most likely consist of either short hikes with a higher elevation gain or longer hikes with lower elevation gain. I would like to do at least 2 hikes on Saturday prior to returning to camp unless we do one long hike. Sunday I would like to possibly do a short hike around Jasper before we do Sulphur Skyline on our way home. If there is interest we can visit the Miette Hot Springs before returning to Edmonton.

Possible hikes include but are not limited to:(I am open to suggestions but will reserve final decision)

  • Overlander Trail
  • Maligne Canyon
  • Sulphur Skyline
  • Athabasca River Trail
  • If you have a Parks Canada pass please let me know if you can bring it to reduce the cost of purchasing one.

    I have made the carpool mandatory to reduce the overall cost for each participant.

  • Daypack
  • Water and food
  • Warm clothing and layers
  • Bear spray
  • Tent
  • Broad-spectrum protection formulated sunscreen

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:
    Carpool to Event Distance (round trip):826Km
    Carpool Departure Time: 5:00 PM
    Carpool Location:   Log in for location
    Carpool Directions:   Log in for directions
    Carpool Cost: The event coordinator(s) will help you to arrange a centralized carpool if you require it, but it's not guaranteed. Please DO NOT pay your driver en route. Passengers will pay the coordinator, and he/she will distribute the money to the carpool drivers. SO PLEASE BRING CASH!!! Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $189.98 (calculated at total Km * $0.23, effective Monday, October 15, 2018). This is based on $0.09/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divided by 9. This cost will be multiplied by the number of carpooled cars, and divided by the number of carpool participants.
